If you don’t like a dish, tell us as soon as possible
If you’d like the lamb closer to medium or hate your dish altogether, we can bring it up to temperature or make you another meal you would enjoy.
Asking me to fix the problem is far preferable to eating half of your entree and telling me it was “meh.” You have a meal you hate, and I feel badly and am compelled to remove the dish from the bill, which means a smaller tip for me. No one wins.
If you’re the only table left, it’s probably time to go soon
You’re the one paying, so you should never feel rushed. But if you have not ordered anything in a while -- 15 minutes is a good touchstone -- and you’re the only people still sitting in the dining room, it’s simply time to go. We will tell you otherwise, but you are, in fact, keeping us here.
